Celebrate with Folkus Thursday, November 7th

Sneak Peek! Folkus Series Launches this week

To start off our season, we’re holding a launch party Thursday, November 7th, 2019 at Equator Coffee Roasters, to celebrate our season and to celebrate our wonderful sound man, Brendan Gawn.

He never gets to mingle at shows because he’s working too hard. Brendan is an excellent sound person because he listens. He listens well because plays a mean bass. And he’ll be playing bass with the Brindled Cats, along with guitarist Rob McMurray. They may bring a few friends.

Join us for a pint or a coffee and possibly a bite to eat!

Individual tickets will be available the first week of January. All our regular season shows are held at the Almonte Old Town Hall.

Exploring the idea of North

We were exploring the idea of North, musically, when we programmed this show. Since then, both performers have travelled elsewhere, but they still offer compelling music and imagery, and we anticipate an exciting evening of music from both Kevin Closs and Flying Hórses.

Sudbury-based singer-songwriter Kevin Closs has followed his musical mentor Ian Tamblyn to Earth’s frigid zones and discovered his muse.

Big Little Lions with s/g Outside I’m A Giant

Big, little, giants…we have an unintended theme for this show. Both groups feature soaring sounds — Big Little Lions feature strong vocal harmonies, while Outside I’m A Giant build on fiddle, pedal steel, and a deep baritone voice.
